AFTER their recent selection, the new members of Stonehaven and District Community Council, SDCC, meet for the first time tomorrow (Tuesday, June 11).

Candidate nominations were sought last month. As there were fewer nominees than places available no election was needed .

Community councils are the most local tier of statutory representation in Scotland. They bridge the gap between local authorities and communities, and help to make public bodies aware of the opinions and needs of the communities they represent. There are around 1,200 active community councils in Scotland. They each receive a small grant to enable them to function. SDCC will receive £1750 for the forthcoming year.

The meeting tomorrow will kick off with the AGM for 2019. The agenda can be seen here.

The normal business meeting will then take place, with an agenda featuring a report from the police and updates on a recent mental health survey and concerns about dog mess.

SDCC meet in the Invercarron Resource Centre, with the AGM starting at 6.45pm. Members of the public are welcome.
